Born From Death’s Scorn

“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” –John 12:24

"What shape waits in the seed of you?" –David Whyte

Born From Death’s Scorn

What longs to be born from the seed?
What shape waits in the seed of you?
What will emerge from the soil?
What will break through?
“Unless a seed falls to the ground and dies . . .”
We will never see resurrection with these eyes.

  1. nice expansion on the scripture...lots of anticipation and new life to come of that death...

  2. Robbie, this is one of my favorite scriptures....I've been thinking about dandelions a lot now that spring is they're all helicopter-y and land wherever the wind sends them. It is a new season--God, plant me where I belong.
